Steady progress is being made in our plans to construct our new church building. On Sunday, November 18, 2012, the congregation voted 254 to 4 in favor of a sale price of $575,000.00 for our current facility. This is a huge step in the financing of the project. Team members are now in conversation with leaders from Anchor church to work out the particulars of a contract for purchase. This agreement will spell out details regarding timeline, furnishings, and contingencies. Immanuel members will vote on the contract when it is ready.
Final design work on the building is near completion. Our next step will be to secure figures for hard costs, enabling us to calculate the price for the entire project. The project cost will then be matched with our revenue. If everything stays on track, we are hopeful to be able to break ground by late spring of 2013. The congregation will vote on the final design and cost before we proceed.
Your steady contributions to the Building Fund are very important. The more money we receive before construction, the less we will need to borrow. Thanks for remembering Immanuel in your year-end giving.
